11th Nov

Another windy morning. A first-winter Caspian Gull and an adult Yellow-legged Gull were seen at the fishing boats and a Velvet Scoter, 1400 Gannets and two Great Skuas passed through.
Very quiet on the land with just a Little Egret and a Firecrest at the Long Pits of note.

A Grey Seal was feeding offshore and five Bank Voles were found under the reptile tins placed out in the area.

Elsewhere, it was another excellent afternoon on the RSPB Reserve where at least 17 Caspian Gulls came in to roost and including a Czech Republic ringed adult.
